Did You Photoshop That?

I suppose the answer depends on what you mean when you use the word photoshop. For now, I’ll assume the question is actually “Did you manipulate that photo?”

The answer is a resounding YES. I manipulated that photo — whichever one it was — before I ever pressed the shutter button. I chose exactly which parts of the scene to leave in and which to leave out; I chose where to focus (and where not to). In fact, my manipulation began when I chose to record that particular scene — and not another.

If you’re still laboring under the delusion that photographs somehow represent the “truth,” watch the video below — it’s a beautiful illustration of photo manipulation, sans software and/or darkroom.
